As part of it’s 1 year anniversary, Rocom Couplings Corp demonstrated it’s support in the technical development and hands-on learning by presenting the Orcutt Academy High School FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics team a donation to support their valuable program. The check was presented by COO, Dan Miano, to Spartatroniks team outreach coordinator, Jordan B.
The Orcutt Academy High School robotics team, FIRST 3512 Spartatroniks, currently has 42 students. Guided by mentors and fully embracing the principles of FIRST, students are responsible for all the work, from the mechanics to the business side – putting in 30+ hours per week on top of their academic studies and other responsibilities. It’s as close to real-world engineering as a student can get, including both the business and design sides of engineering.
